Leeds United head coach Marcelo Bielsa has held his pre-match press conference ahead of Monday’s Premier League clash with Leicester City at Elland Road.

Here we look at five points made by the Leeds United head coach ahead of the upcoming fixture.

On the time between matches in the Premier League compared to the Championship…

“If we had played at the weekend we would have been fine as well. The fact that we’ve had more days to prepare for this game means we’ll have less games to prepare for Crystal Palace. You get one thing, but it goes against you the next time.”

On Jamie Vardy…

“He’s a very good player who scores lots of goals and he’s very quick.”

On approaching the game differently due to the pace in Leicester’s attack…

“Of course, we take into account all the characteristics of the opponents attackers, but there won’t be any particular change with that in mind.”

On having faith in young players…

“It’s very important as the Academy helps out and contributes a large number of players to the first team.”

On Jamie Shackleton…

“In the case of Shackelton, he has played in the first team before and every time he has played with personality and has done a good job.”
